Fresh claims that Boris Johnson had a birthday party at Number 10 during the first government-imposed lockdown, despite Britons being barred from mixing indoors, has becoming the latest ‘Partygate’ scandal facing the prime minister’s office.
Amidst suggestions that Johnson should step down, Bow Group Chairman Ben Harris-Quinney told GB News that there was, “no point changing leaders of the Conservatives to yet another phoney conservative” such as Liz Truss.
Mr Harris-Quinney told GB News’s Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster: “What brought down [David] Cameron and [Theresa] May was that they presented themselves as the saviours of conservatism… but then a few years later, they’re exposed to be another continuation of the Blairite metropolitan liberal way of doing things.”
“Brexit was a signal that people wanted to see things done very differently,” Mr Harris-Quinney continued.
“There’s no point just changing to leader of the Conservative Party to someone else who’s another phoney conservative. I think the Conservative Party needs to undergo a major reform agenda to reconnect it with a genuine base.”
